This two-day business forecasting course covers the fundamentals of demand management and planning, including roles/responsibilities and accountabilities, definitions, process flows, levels, timing and horizons, technologies, and mechanics.
The instructors explain best practices companies are applying today; beginning with giving you a perspective on broad demand management techniques and success drivers and ending with you knowing where the gaps are in your business process, tools, and people capabilities, and what to do about them when you get back to your desk. There is no theory, only practical, applied concepts.
Because Oliver Wight is in consultative contact with hundreds of companies in virtually all industries and points on the supply chain, our best practices knowledge is always fresh. To give you a leg up on potential new areas of demand planning advantage, our business forecasting course includes discussion of developing trends in best practices - where the next improvements or even breakthroughs are likely to appear.
Course design accommodates discussion and idea sharing among participants as well as hands-on practice. Small team workshops and assignments build to a full multiple-view consensus demand planning exercise in the second half of the course.
